College News and Departmental Notes: The Elementary Club
by Departmental notes - 1916
Membership in the Elementary Club is open to all persons who are in any way concerned with the problems of elementary education. However, the organization feels that the interests of its members will be served best by offering them a chance to obtain a broader outlook upon educational problems in general. To present these questions adequately a series of lectures has been planned upon such topics as Immigration, Women in Industry, The Problem of the Junior High School, The Problem of Art Instruction, etc. The club also believes that the best elementary teacher should be a social being. Accordingly, at each meeting there is provided a program of games and old-fashioned dances—"something for everyone." The music, too, is carefully chosen with the object of entertaining the club members with the best vocal and instrumental music that can be procured. The organization also tries to make a pleasant social feature of the tea which it serves regularly, once each month, in the social room. The scheme of "socialization," if it may be called that, which the program committee has adopted, is the extremely practical device of getting as many people as possible to work for the interests of the club. If the reader desires to enroll himself among the one hundred or more members, he will find that the only qualification needed in addition to an interest hi elementary education is the acceptance on his part of the slogan for good fellowship implied hi the motto of the club: "No Strangers."
